Reliance 44 sloop, “Voyager”. Just finished a 14 yr. circumnavigation and is completely equipped to do it again. Long, narrow and strongly built with a deep “V” hull, modified full keel and skegged rudder, makes Voyager a no-nonsense fast and sea-kindly yacht. An aft cockpit layout with hard dodger/bimini, raised cabin top to mast, then flush deck fwd of mast, makes "Voyager" a safe and comfortable vessel, at sea. The interior is, inviting and comfortable with all the creature comforts such as a powerful refrigeration system, custom crafted mattress for the V-berth and a computer-centric nav station/office. The solar panels, (5), KISS wind generator & a 210A engine driven alternator cover all the power requirements. Propulsion is via the venerable, “work-horse”, Perkins 4-236, 82 hp diesel connected to a 4-blade, feathering propeller, providing the most efficient drive system under power and low drag under sail. The rig is simple with a slab reefing mainsail and roller furling Genoa. A quick release inner forestay provides heavy weather capability and a clear foredeck when not needed. "Voyager" has been loved and maintained by a knowledgeable Engineer/Captain. She comes completely equipped with too many spares to list including a complete set of engine accessory, spares, making her ready to go back to blue water again..
